My home in Texas was all I had known for most of my life. Of course, my family traveled on vacations and went to visit relatives, but I hadn’t known any other home. I enjoyed living in Texas. The weather was usually warm so I could normally play outside with my neighbors, we had a sizable backyard with a small little grove of trees in one of the far back corners and a swing set and I had a capacious room with a window looking out to the street. I thought school was kinda’ fun and I enjoyed playing with my friends at recess.
We also have “huts” to live in.(background). We can be warm instead of freezing in the winter night. We also have chimneys and a fireplace in the huts.(background). We have even more warmth in the huts. We at least survived the winter, the hardest time of the year.(background).
I also made friends during this time period with whom I am still close with. At the end of fifth grade, my parents had to make the difficult decision of moving our family back to India, as both of my grandmothers had started experiencing deteriorations in their health. I started sixth grade at the Trivandrum International School in Kerala, the state that both my parents are originally from. I experienced quite a lot of culture
I will be a first-generation college student next fall, and I know that I will be successful because I have always been able to overcome the obstacles I face. The challenge of moving to a new country, struggling to survive, and learn a new language have all led to who I am today, and for that, I feel I am a better person. Your investment in me today will certainly help bring a brighter future for me
I decided I didn’t want to be homeless, struggling to live day by day, or dependent on anyone ever again to have a home or security. An education will allow me to surpass my family 's history and make them proud with my own personal
Other valuable lessons were that it was acceptable to ask for help and to leave my comfort zone to accomplish something. I believe that the most important lesson I learned from this obstacle in life, that is fundamental to my future success, is to not take things for granted. There are always people who have it worse. Before arriving in the U.S., my future consisted of the same story as all the other women in my family, which was to drop out of school and form a family from a young age. I learned that for my desire to be proficient in life I would have to attend college.
By their example, I have learned to be content with little and be content with much because everything we have it’s a blessing. I also have been taught that while achieving formal education and a career is crucial, it’s more important to grow spiritually as a person. For that reason, I discovered the joy that you can acquired by serving others. Overall, they have taught me that all my dreams can come true if I work hard to achieve
The furniture was old and sparse. Nothing fancy. My grandmother never owned a television. The walls in the living room were loaded with family photographs, many of which were photos of the sons who served in World War II all dressed up in their military uniforms. A wood stove stood in the middle of this room.
Hard work and dedication towards these jobs has kept my business alive and growing. Every early morning and late night has shaped me to be the person I am today. Without these hobbies and small interests I wouldn't have the desire I have today to get work done. I've always heard that when I get a job it should be something that I love and not something that would make me unhappy. So far i'm happy with what I do for myself and others.
